Cultivating Wonder, Sparking Joy
Curiosity, energy, and a natural excitement for exploring. Kindergartners were created uniquely to experience the world God created with wonder and enthusiasm. Their early learning experiences should encourage and reinforce these natural tendencies as well as prepare them for a lifetime of joyful learning.
Kindergarten at Covenant welcomes these eager young learners into the classroom to begin building fundamental skills while encouraging their curiosity. We guide them to ask good questions and train them to think deeply about each subject area. Students discover new knowledge through movement, songs, jingles, and chants. Through classroom discussions, quality literature, and devotionals, students gain wisdom to discern right from wrong and begin to understand their own role in the Great Conversation.
Learning in these early years sets the stage for structured educational experiences in the future. Students gain foundational skills to help them think deeply, read widely, and write well. Through systematic phonics instruction, hands-on experiences in science, and consistent and orderly practice in mathematics, these young learners grasp new concepts with eagerness and joy. Kindergarten provides students with a preview of the many things they will learn and experience during their years in the classical Christian classrooms at Covenant and prepares them for the rigors of classical education along with a love for learning alongside their peers.
Many parents are concerned about whether or not their child is prepared for kindergarten at Covenant. We’re delighted to partner with parents as they seek to prepare their children to begin a Covenant education. Preparation for kindergarten should be filled with joy and energy to excite both the mind and the body.
